Angelo State University’s Department of History will host the second spring 2019 installment of its Great War Centennial Commemoration Lecture Series on Thursday, March 21, at 7 p.m. in the Carr Education-Fine Arts (EFA) Building, 2602 Dena Drive.
Titled “Influenza and the Great War,” the lecture will take place in the EFA Building’s Eldon Black Recital Hall and is open free to the public. Dr. Nicholas Negovetich, an ASU associate professor of biology, will discuss the Spanish Flu Epidemic, one of the most devastating events and legacies of the Great War Era.
The four-year lecture series began in September 2015 to commemorate World War I, also known as the Great War, and has been partially funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) grant. The series is co-sponsored this spring by the ASU West Texas Collection, Russian Enrichment Program, and Office of the Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities.
